July Library Meetup Roundup!


We had a special guest at last week’s July Library Meetup! Aidan Diaz at the San Marcos Daily Record came by to take some pictures and talk with the group. It’s hard to tell if this will turn into a story — board games are fun, but they’re not as dynamic as Lego events or Pearl Harbor veterans flying in biplanes. It’s great to be noticed, though, and we’ll continue to spread the word however we can.

In the meantime, we had a good time doing our usual activity: playing games! Sopwith was back on the table, with more improvements and upgrades to the models. That set is turning into something spectacular.

Roll Through the Ages was another popular game this month. I’ve played this a lot as an iOS app, but this was my first time rolling the dice and building my civilization in the real world. It’s a lot harder than that way, and I was forced to ask my daughter to bring her mad dice-rolling skills to my assistance. She helped me build the Great Pyramid in just one turn, but alas! It still wasn’t quite enough to catch up.

Other games played included The Duke, Qwirkle, Takenoko, Kingdom Builder, Smash Up, and the only slightly disturbingly over the top Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre. That title says it all, and there’s even a completely useless to the game itself but still cool cardboard standup of Mt. Skullzfire:

Weird mountains aside, our July library meetup was a great success! Join us on Sunday, August 17 for our next library meetup, and don’t forget our meetup tomorrow night (July 22) at the Hungry Gamer!
